“Pilot Pete” Weber and Matt James’ rejects will make up a majority of Bachelor in Paradise‘s population this summer.
ABC on Thursday revealed the initial crop of 19 “fan favorites” and “standout sweethearts” who will take another shot at love during Season 7 (premiering Monday, Aug. 16, at 8/7c). Among those set to check in at an undisclosed romantic resort in Mexico are a dozen bachelorettes from The Bachelor‘s most recent two seasons, including Natasha Parker and Kelsey Weier (who were among the final six vying for Weber’s heart during Season 24), and Serena Pitt (who was among the final four competing for James’ affection during Season 25).
Additionally, Joe Amabile (from Becca Kufrin’s Bachelorette season) and Tahzjuan Hawkins (who dodged a bullet as one of the first to be eliminated during Colton Underwood’s season) will make return trips to Paradise. Four of Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams’ rebuffed bachelors will also participate.
As previously reported, BiP has lined up several guest hosts for its latest cycle, including David Spade (Just Shoot Me!), Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Lance Bass and Lil Jon. They will take turns subbing in for longtime host Chris Harrison, who is permanently stepping down from ABC’s reality dating empire after 19 years.
